I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cut off my relaxed hair! I DID MY BIG CHOP! I am so proud of myself. I finally conquered that fear and my hair is beautiful. This is the healthiest it has been since my childhood. And I got a whole lot of hair on my head. Just enjoy the pictures with me.....

Here's my afro!!! This is the way it looked before the stylist did my coils. This woman is amazing. I have been teaching myself how to do certain styles, but I just wanted my first style as a natural to be awesome. That is why I went to a salon. Also I wanted a good first cut and I felt like if I did it, it would have been a hit and miss.

I've had so many people come up to me and complimenting me on my hair. I didn't think I would have such a response so soon. I was walking in the mall and about 5 people back to back stopped me to comment on my hair. This is just so exciting. NOW I"M A BONAFIDE NATURAL WOMAN!!!! (go me)


  1. OH WOW, Go You!! It is really pretty! I am coming to your blog via your youtube channel.I don't even remember how I found your youtube channel, but I am so glad I did. I have been looking for a blog and channel like yours that will help me with my baby's hair. I wish I would have found it before I permed her hair last year. But, I slowly cut her perm out as her hair grew and she is once again completely natural. My older daughter and I are transitioning. I am 6 weeks post relaxer and my daughter is about 12 weeks post relaxer. I love, love, love your channel and can't wait to see what you're going to do with your blog. I'm sure being a teacher has you pretty busy, but I appreciate what you're doing. I'm also going to do the 30 day challenge with my youngest daughter. I'm getting ready to take her braids out now, wash and condition it and put in two strand twists. I'll keep you posted.

  2. I just found your blog via Carlotta. Your hair is beautiful! I can't wait to check out your Youtube channel. Congratulations on your BC!

  3. Ah man! Congratulations!!! I've been transitioning for 11 months and am currently wrestling with whether I should just chop the rest of my relaxed hair off. Ooo... I don't know if i'm bold enough yet!! But a HUGE congratulations to you! You look fabulous!!! Can't wait to get there myself :)
